Abstract:

Society in Language, Language in Society: Essays in Honour of Ruqaiya Hasan is the first collection dedicated to research directly influenced by the innovative and groundbreaking ideas of the eminent linguist Ruqaiya Hasan. The collection offers an insight into the breadth and depth of Hasan's distinctive linguistic approaches and theoretical concerns. It includes original contributions by well-known scholars such as M.A.K. Halliday, Margaret Berry, David G. Butt, Donna R. Miller, Geoff Williams, Mary Schleppegrell, Annabelle Lukin, Alison Rotha Moore and Tom Bartlett, and covers a range of areas including verbal art, context of situation, semantic networks, cohesive harmony, text structure and literacy education. The volume also contains an interview with Ruqaiya Hasan by David Butt and Jennifer Yameng Liang, and a section in which the contributors describe their connection with Ruqaiya Hasan and her work.

This book is of particular value to scholars and students working in sociolinguistics, literary criticism, stylistics, functional linguistic theories, literacy pedagogy, social semiotics, multimodality and applied linguistics.
